Let's go daddy! Let's go!

Sunday mornings, we go over to a friends condo in montrose and watch their 18-month old son while they go to church. Normally, carol plays with the boys while i noodle around on the laptop or watch sunday morning cartoons on pbs. They return an hour later and we sit around chatting for a bit before we head out the door ...

normally, we go home.

This time carol wanted to take a detour and see if the Sunbeam bakery (one of those cheap bakeries) on Washington Ave. was open. Going east on Washington, i was already in the turning lane to go north onto studemont when she asked to go to the bakery. So once i made the turn i got on Center lane, approaching the bakery from behind.

If you've never driven down Center Lane (running parallel to Washington to the north) you should really take the time do so. It is an idustrial warehouse street lined with metal scrapyards, pipe distributors, concrete plants, and other heavy industry businesses. The bakery was closed, but instead of heading home, we drove down Center Point snapping photos here and there: a big white 'e' on a red backgroudn; a big green and yellow machine; some railroad ties ...

We took a left on Sawyer, intending to head back towards I-10 and home, but then to my left i saw this and jerked my wheel into the artists lofts that housed it.

This is pretty big (5 mb) but totally worth it, i swear. I had never seen this in Houston.

Update: The busts are here. Texas native, David Adickes, is an internationally renowned sculptor and painter. His artwork and scultpures are displayed in 10 major art museums across America. He's also the fellow responsible for the huge Sam Houston sculpture on I-45 near Huntsville.


  • dang. everything is bigger in Texas. But seriously, are those ginormous heads to placed on destructo-robot bodies that will rampage through town some day? o que?
